What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"You have a patient who is terminally ill and in a great deal of pain. He wants you to give him something to end it. What do you do? (He really grilled me on this one, continuing to ask "well what about this..." but then said he was just trying to push me.)" Report Response

"Other common ethical questions: Attending comes in drunk, what do you do? Choose an ethical issue facing medicine today & discuss. What would you do if a 13 year old girl, who had parental consent, wanted an abortion? If you saw a friend cheating on an exam, what would you do?" Report Response

"What can we do to get you to come here? " Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"He asked a lot of questions pertaining to an African Studies class I took freshman year. It was difficult because I did not remember much and my interviewer had spent a significant amount of time in Africa. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Your recommendations are very good, but one of your professors said he thought you could have performed better in his class. Why is that? " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Gathered a list of commonly-asked questions, and a list of questions from SDN for OSU from the past year. Prepared answers to all of them. Practiced answering questions. Stayed current on health news, etc. Most of the questions were very predictable. I literally could have finished his sentence a few times--they clearly have some standard questions that everyone is asked." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"OSU seems on the "up and up". They have great facilities, new hospitals, a new dean, and seem to really care about medical education, not just research. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour was rushed and nothing of interest was shown to us. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing too shocking. I was, however, a bit surprised at the male/female ratio. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview since interviewing for BS/MD programs in high school. The day went very well, and left me with a really good impression of the school. I got an older interviewer who was very personable yet he created more of a stressful atmosphere than I expected. He started off the interview by asking about some weaknesses in my application and then continued to interrupt me. However, I learned a lot from the interview and I was accepted on the first possible day, so it must have gone well. " Report Response
